Year of the Snake

Year of the Snake picks up where the energetic Idolatry, left off, and takes you even further into the simultaneously cynical and whimsical depths of Devlin’s imagination.

Primarily a “break up” album in the spirit of Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks and Richard & Linda Thompson’s Shoot Out the LightsYear of the Snake starts on a humorous note with the infectious potential pop hit, “My Favorite Ex-Girlfriend.” Complete with a catchy chorus (sure to have you singing along, even if you don’t have a favorite ex-girlfriend), and a delightful brass section (played entirely by brass and woodwind virtuoso, Peck Allmond) the song chugs along with both glee and disdain. Sure to be a crowd pleaser at live shows.
